My reception went from great to horrible in past few months. I will probably need to switch. Not happyWas this review helpful to you?
In my work with the military, I travel out to the maneuver areas and test ranges on Fort Bliss, McGregor Range, and all over White Sands Missile Range. I am able to make and receive calls while several co-workers are not. That is my biggest selling point for Verizon - quality coverage when I need it. Downside is that this quality comes at a price - I know I pay a bit ($5 to $35) more than co-workers, but at least mine works!Was this review helpful to you?
El paso and surrounding area reception sucks. Galaxy S6 EdgeWas this review helpful to you?
Extremely slow, no internet unless your at a free wi-fi location. Your paying for a free service. Drop calls, dead zones. While the person next to me has Verizon and get reception both Internet and can make and receive calls. Big rip off service. I think it's only in the El Paso area that Sprint is not good.Was this review helpful to you?
Sprint's LTE is a joke in El Paso. Nearly everywhere in the USA Sprint actually works pretty well. Sprint would have been better off improving their 3G here than upgrading to LTE. I've been all over the world and used local carriers who's 3G works better than Sprint LTE with full bars here in El Paso. Even in the rain Forrests of Costa Rica, the deserts of Israel, Kuwait, Iraq, or isolated islands in Thailand I was able to consestanlty get 10-15mbps over 3G. With a perfect signal and within eyesight of Sprint towers anywhere in El Paso, I'm lucky to get 0.5mbps over LTE. Another issue is that I keep getting threatening messages from Sprint saying I'm roaming too much... All while not even having left El Paso. Is it my fault if they say they have coverage in this area and then aren't able to provide it?! I've been here for over a year now and have upgraded from an LG G3 to an iPhone 6S Plus and have never seen any improvements.Was this review helpful to you?
Very bad coverage. Internet is always sloww. Not 4 g quality. Called customer service several times. They'll tell u . That their working / updating towers to be patient for a couple of days while "towers are being upgraded" but coverage neverrr improvesss. Lasted only one month with themm. Sprint is not worth the monthly bill they try to chargeWas this review helpful to you?
Finally in the next two weeks the tower will finally be switched over to LTE and according to the Sprint rep the tower might already have the element of the 800 MHz on it finallyWas this review helpful to you?
If I don't have my wireless on from ATT I cant do much. T-Mobile out in the northeast at least from our house is not very reliable. I go out on the loop and its pretty decent. On the east side I get full bars and super fast data. I don't have a expensive phone either. I have a LG Optimus 9. But for the purpose of this review in the 79934 area it can be spotty at best until you get up on the loop or by transmountain. thanks and happy celling... .****Was this review helpful to you?
Sprint lured my to buy their 4G phone by saying how great it would be, but they didn't bother to install the infrastructure and after about 2 years I gave up on them. Having been a customer for like 15 years, I tried to give them every chance, and they honestly didn't seem to care. Finally switched to Verizon and it's been great. Don't waste your money on Sprint. I'll NEVER go back after repeated pleas for improvements, they never even replied. When I could get a person, they seemed to acknowledge they were bad, and gave zero assurance they would get better!Was this review helpful to you?
Verizon has been amazing for me in El Paso. Both at home and across the city. I currently have a 3g phone and have never had a problem with speed so I'm really looking forward to my new 4g phone!Was this review helpful to you?
